When you use the redaction and restriction data regulation models, you cannot import records into Salesforce by using the native import functionality. In this case, your records will be directly imported into the Salesforce database, which may violate compliance regulations for specific records. To import records in compliance with the chosen model, you need to use the functionality of the InCountry Data Residency for Salesforce package.
Import file requirements
You can import CSV or XLS files with records.
Column names should correspond to the Salesforce system field names.
There are no limits for imported records as data is loaded in batches (100 records per batch). Anyway, consider that the resulting import duration is affected by the number of records.
You can use the import functionality to update the existing records. In this case, your file should include the id column with identifiers of records stored on the InCountry platform.
The import functionality also considers the country attribution of records, as follows:
If you are using the object-level restriction only, so all records will be loaded to the InCountry platform in the chosen country. The presence of the column with countries is not required in the import file.
If you are using the record-level restriction, your import file should include the column with countries which each record originates from. Otherwise, the file import fails.
Load the InCountry Data Residency for Salesforce package.
Open the Salesforce object and its list of records.
In the top right part of the screen, locate the Import CSV/XLS button.
Click Import CSV/XLS.
Select the file for import or drop it onto the form.
Upon the successful import, the package returns the file with identifiers of imported records. Imported records will appear on the list.
Upon the failed import, the package returns the file with error details for each record.
